Another mech in a new series of paintings I'm working on for the battletech merc unit Strider's Strikers.

This one is a Stalker 85ton assault mech. Not a very pretty mech, but through mine and mecha-master's efforts we have updated it a bit. This varrient carries 2 PPCs and a Heavy Gauss Rifle.

I love what you did here.  You took what is usually represented as a clunky, awkward design and made it look nimble while still being huge.  Perfect.  If the models looked like this, I'd use them.

I love the stalker. Its got to be one of my favorite mechs. very solid fire support mech. its practically a turret that can shuffle around a bit.

Loved them since MW2:Mercs. They look like jumbo jets with legs. Dunno why they say it's ugly: I mean it's no Madcat but it ain't a Jenner either.

Wow! You made the most ugly mech into a top model! What can I say about that?

Is the Stalker a run and gun type mech like the Firefly, Raven, and Orion? cause it does pack quite a punch to be equal to the Shadowcat and Cougar.

I don't know how fast it is, but it's far heavier and heavily armed than the ones you listed :D

So it would equal to the Madcat or the Vulture?

Heavier still, it's an 85tonner, assault mech.

Wow, such a small size, and so little weaponary and still weighs over Medium to large mechs. Can it actually destroy a Madcat on a one on one dual?

Dude, I'm not much of a battle tech expert so I never knew that the mech is much bigger than what I see it as.

Dude, you are replying to a 1.5 year old message, I'm already over with this conversation.

There's nothing in the image saying it's small, and it's weapons are all heavy hitters, especially the heavy gauss (they are listed in my comments). While it could carry more weapons, it has a lot of armor and ammo. Read it's sarna wiki page if you want to know more about it.

how the stalker was designed in my headcannon: "how many weapons do you want on that mech" "YES"

I mean the hulk seems small as almost all heavy hitter (in the games) mechs have "arms" and other utilities (Even the catapult has launch pods). This is the first time I have seem one big mech without arms. I should probably take a look at it some more.
